But that's not all! We gladly suffer, because we know that suffering helps us to endure. And endurance builds character, which gives us a hope that will never disappoint us. All of this happens because God has given us the Holy Spirit, who fills our hearts with his love. Romans 5:3-5

Kingdom Prayer Focus

Lord God, your love for us is beyond our human comprehension, and we willingly receive your offer of mercy and grace. You reach out to those whom we judge to be unreachable, you love those who are unlovable, and you touch those who are untouchable. Lord your ways appear upside down to we who hold ourselves in higher regard than others. Open the eyes of Your children so we can see the spiritual battle taking place.  Forgive our self-righteous attitude and remind us that we cannot separate your son Jesus from the message. For the message is not about our goodness and how righteous we appear on the outside, it is all about you and YOUR goodness.  Remind us that you command us to love our neighbor as ourselves. We need to look deep inside our hearts to see our own sinfulness and stop trying to fool others with our works. Thank you again for your perfect love for us, in Jesus’ name, amen.
